Over reading week in February of 2018, we were lucky to host a workshop entitled: “Bridging Flood Science in Canada with Policy and Practice.” Presented in partnership with the United Nations University – Institute for Water, Environment and Health (UNU-INWEH). The 2.5-day workshop welcomed FloodNet researchers, students and partners to learn about how best to communicate research results in a way that is of use to policy makers. A team of 20 participants worked through the knowledge transition process to develop a research summary and provide a brief presentation to policy makers. A special thanks to UNU-INWEH, especially Vladimir Smakhtin and Michael Devlin for facilitating the workshop, as well as Kaelen Moat and Noah Gaetz for providing policy expertise.
